Michael Jackson has died after suffering a cardiac arrest.

The King of Pop was rushed to the UCLA Medical Centre, where he was pronounced dead at 2.25 pm local time, after having been found unconscious in his rented Los Angeles home.

Jackson, 50, was described as “unresponsive” when paramedics arrived at his home, and was rushed to the hospital by ambulance “in full cardiac arrest”.

Hundreds of fans massed outside the hospital after news of the stars arrival there emerged. Many burst into tears after the pop sensations brother, Jermaine Jackson, confirmed the worst.

 “My brother, the legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson, died on Thursday 25, 2009.

“Our family requested that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time. And we all will be with you Michael, always. Love you.”

A post-mortem examination and toxicology tests will be carried out on Jackson’s body by the Los Angeles coroner. A spokesman for the coroner’s investigation unit said that there was no indication of foul play or drug use “at this point”.

The singer was to embark on his final farewell tour next month at the 02 Arena in London.

He leaves behind three children.

This is unbelievably sad. Most us grew up with the eccentric yet genius star. He made an undeniable mark on the world with his true star power, talent and prowess. It is truly the end of an era. Condolences go out to his family and children.

RIP – Gone but never forgotten.
